Plant Walk led by Tek Tekh Gabaldon, Steward of Ranchero Mark West, 7125 St. Helena Road Santa Rosa. Kids 8 and older welcome.

Meet at 9:30 am at the Safeway center at Calistoga Road and Highway 12 if you want to carpool or caravan to this 124 acre preserve which serves as an outdoor classroom with LandPaths.

Naturalist Tek Tekh Gabaldon, who is Mishewal Wappo, is a traditional culture bearer active in tribal ceremonial activities in the North Bay. She will lead us on a 3 or so mile hike along Mark West Creek, through redwood forest, woodlands, and chaparral to see wildflowers and learn about the stewardship and fire recovery of the preserve from the 2020 Glass Fire as well as traditional uses of native plants.

Trails are well-developed; wear boots or sturdy shoes and bring water and a sack lunch. Hat and sunscreen may be in order.
